After a widely disappointing first half of the season and the mistakes committed in the summer, many Bayern fans had hoped for a reaction in January. It looked like happening for a while as well. And yet the club remains almost empty-handed. “We want to sign the player. I’m completely convinced of his ability. We’re […]
When a dog’s dinner is good enough: Three takeaways from FC Bayern’s grubby cup win against SV Rödinghausen
It was another frustrating struggle, but FC Bayern München are through to the third round of the DFB-Pokal. Apart from the result itself, there were no positives to take away from this disjointed, grubby display against fourth-tier SV Rödinghausen in Osnabrück. In short, it was a bit of a dog’s dinner. 1. Bayern are still […]
FC Bayern beat Eintracht Frankfurt 4-1, with Jupp Heynckes rotating some youth players into the first eleven. After the line-ups were announced, football Germany hyperventilated over Bayern’s B-team filled up with four amateurs and was outraged by the alleged “distortion of competition”. Apart from the fact that any other club would have acted in the […]
With a weak performance in Leipzig, Bayern lose 1:2. After making it into the Champions League quarter-finals, the Reds met RB Leipzig this matchday, who also progressed one round during the week in the Europa League. Jupp Heynckes rotated strongly in comparison to the game against Besiktas. Niklas Süle and Joshua Kimmich started instead of […]
The win over Freiburg was not quite as glorious as the Hinrunde victory, but it was still impressive. Especially noting that fact that Bayern played an unfamiliar XI. But before the trio delve in to tactics, Adrian gives a run down of the SCF season so far, and what the team’s reasonable targets are.
A 4-1-4-1 without any true wingers is discussed, and with it the suitability of a Juan Bernat/David Alaba left side. The seemingly weekly topic of Arturo Vidal at single pivot rears its ugly head again, before the chat turns a bit more positive as the Sandro Wagner/Thomas Mueller duo proved to be refreshingly fruitful.
Moving on past the Freiburg game, the topic switches to the World Cup and the chances for Wagner and Nils Petersen to get to Russia. Along that vein, Sven Ulreich is also making a name for himself to do the same.
The podcast closes out with the group kiboshing the Streich to Bayern rumor as ludicrous, before bringing up Jupp Heynckes’ public approval of Thomas Tuchel as his successor, and what that might mean for Bayern Munich going forward.
Thanks, as always, for listening! Mia san mia.
Late on Sunday evening, the Munich team returned to the road to success with a 4-0 away win. With a 20 point lead, the championship is only a matter of weeks. The first leg marked the start of Jupp Heynckes’ tenure. Since then, 15 victories, one draw and one defeat in the Bundesliga have been […]
Susie and MSR’s Chris talk about those two matches, plus a bit about future coaching decisions and just what is going on with the Bundesliga these days.
Mainz is first as Chris explains their midfield press and how it made life difficult for Bayern initially while Susie questions using a ‘B” side here and bringing out all the guns for the Paderborn game.
Sandro Wagner’s first start is worth a mention, but the pair first segue off to chat about the ever-evolving news on who Bayern Munich’s next trainer will be.
A very tidy 6-0 victory to reach the semi finals of the DFB Pokal competition is on deck as Susie and Chris discuss what went so much better for FCB here than against Mainz 05.
The podcast closes out with a couple of quite important topics: 1) As the team comes to full fitness, who will be starting week in and week out? 2) What the heck is wrong with the Bundesliga this season? Why can’t anyone even attempt to catch up to Bayern at this point?
Thank you, as always, for tuning in! We’ll catch up with you after a very tasty Schalke match! Mia san mia.
